My self-summary
I aspire to be a complex hybrid of Grizzly Adams, Macgyver, and Frank Serpico. I'll let you be the judge of how well I pull it off.
What I’m doing with my life
Contemplating social inequality, starting a school (only one student so far, but you have to start somewhere), facilitating a discussion class for immigrants seeking to improve their English, and lots of writing; sometimes elegant sentences and sometimes word salads.
I’m really good at
Explaining American football to foreigners, being the second person to start dancing (not the first, I won't be the first), remembering my favorite lines from movies.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm very relaxed. I've also had complete strangers tell me I remind them of Malcolm Reynolds from the tv show "Firefly".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll tell you the book I'm totally engrossed in right now. It's "Reconstruction: America's Unfinished Revolution". Loving the history text right now.
Rushmore is a favorite, Heat, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans,
Outkast, CeeLo, D'Angelo,
The Inbetweeners, The Wire, Homicide: Life on the Street,
Six things I could never do without
Vacations to my get-away castle in Germany, weekend floats down the Danube, the bi-annual nomadic trek across the Kalahari, definitely couldn't do without my occasional cock-fighting bets, photo-bombing cops taking pictures of one another, and my neon pink rain boots.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether my okcupid profile sends the wrong message or the perfect message.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with friends or sometimes I just pretend it's Wednesday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cried during Braveheart.
You should message me if
you like to sit on the couch listening to music, you'd advocate for me if a club would not let me in because I'm wearing basketball shorts, if you're laid back (ie, if you're not type-A), you know where my user name comes from, or if you want to go people-watching in the park.
The two of us
